Captain Shamil Mohamed is an expert in night fishing, mainly specializing in hunting Red Snapper, Grouper, Green Job fish and a variety of other species that are primarily active at nighttime. Mohamed is also no stranger to big game and bottom fishing for a diverse range of deep sea pelagic fish that call these waters home.

The Maldives play host to some of the most coveted species by anglers around the world, such as Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Barracuda, Amberjack and many more, common in the area around Madaveli during the big game season. The primary season for big game fishing in the Maldives spans from July to December.

Captain Shami has accumulated over 15 years of fishing experience in the area. He operates a 21ft vessel powered by a single Yamaha 50HP 4 strokes outboard engine. The boat is equipped with a standard set of navigational gear such as GPS and Fishfinder, and can accommodate parties of up to 5 fishermen per trip. All the fishing gear you’ll need for the trip is supplied by Shamil, complete with artificial and live bait.
